“The Enforcer” Arn Anderson is back. One of the toughest men in pro wrestling and one of it’s most real voices returned to pro wrestling on Wednesday night with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) as the new manager of Cody Rhodes. While he’d previously had a one-off with AEW at All Out in Chicago, Wednesday saw Arn Anderson officially join AEW as a new on-air presence.

But the grounds were laid in Chicago, when Arn Anderson cut a promo putting over AEW and calling out his former tag team champion, Shawn Spears manager and fellow Four Horseman Tully Blanchard.
Arn Anderson became available to AEW when he was let go by the WWE – the company he’d joined in 2001 when WWE took over WCW – following a controversy involving letting WWE Superstar Alicia Fox compete under the influence. But Anderson has headed to AEW where he will now guide the son of one of the Four Horsemen’s greatest rivals, Dusty Rhodes. Cody also took to Twitter to back his choice in Anderson as his new mentor, as Double A was the road agent in WWE who took Cody under his wing.
"In 2007 when I debuted on television, Arn was there to provide me guidance & positive reinforcement when I walked back through the curtain…but he also would give me an earful when I didn’t deliver or when I settled for less than what I should have" – @CodyRhodes pic.twitter.com/zjN8HdaQuD
